Jody Rosen Joins New York as Pop Critic

Jody Rosen has been named New York’s pop critic. Rosen’s work has appeared in a variety of publications, such as Entertainment Weekly and The New Yorker. He was also previously a senior critic at Rolling Stone and the music critic for Slate.

“Jody is a sharp critic and beautiful, lucid writer with broad tastes, unerring radar and a knack for finding big ideas between pop’s niches,” said Adam Moss, editor-in-chief of New York, in a statement. “We’re excited to have him.”

Rosen — who starts June 1 — is taking the pop critic spot from Nitsuh Abebe, who is now a general culture and features writer for the magazine.
